I’ve used this product a few times and have always been happy with the finished item. I actually wore a vest until it was worn out. I’m using this yarn to make another. The service from yarn Canada was the best.
Yarn is as stated, lovely and soft., perfect for the sweater I’m knitting. Site is easy to use. Excellent service and delivery is quick.
This yarn is very consistent and will always produce a great fabric. From sweaters to hats and mittens it can be comfortably worn next to the skin.
I have so many 30-40 year old Patons Pattern Books from when my kids were young and now I am knitting for my Grandkids.
I love this yarn so much I placed a second order for more within a month.. Knits up easy and fast...
Perfect wool for a sweater for my daughter
Lovely wool but a bit soft for the hat and headband I was knitting, not quite as much body as I need. I will use it for something else
Soft and works up very nicely. Have found a couple of knotted pieces in one or two of the skeins but over all, very pleased with this product.
good quality yarn...easy to order online ....quick delivery. Very happy!
